Rick is a human from Barstow and an amateur racing driver. He is also a professional bully, to the extent that he has cultivated a sinister squint, has an underling in the form of Bill, a spiked racing helmet and access to explosives he has no compunction about using to win a minor provincial motor race.
Challenge of the GoBots cartoon
- Voice actor: David Jolliffe
Rick was randomly bullying a child over a basketball while Bill slouched against a fence when Don and Greg rode past in their new ride, and were immediately aware of this threat to their hopes of winning the Barstow Grand Prix. The only logical thing to do was plant a bomb on their rivals' car before the race started, though at first they raced fairly by using standard tactics like hurling fireworks and tyre spikes at Don and Greg. They met with no success but the arrival of a trio of Renegades wiped out most of the field and they were left in a three-way tussle with Don & Greg and what they didn't realise was Crasher. The ruffians decided that this was the best point to set off their bomb but even that didn't stop the red car - which shocked Rick so much he crashed their car.Speed Is of the Essence
- Challenge of the GoBots is always very, very vague about the ages of any humans but Rick is treated like a teenager despite looking well over thirty.
